26 Things You Should Throw Away Today

It’s that time of year. Christmas is right around the corner and the new year is quickly approaching. You’ll be hosting get-togethers for your family and friends and you’ve just realised how messy your house is! It’s time to start embracing the minimalist inside each and every one of us and throw some unnecessary crap away!

It’s also a great little stress reliever for the old seasonal stress!

Tidy room = tidy mind
That’s the old saying, right? Well, some of us (and I’ve been guilty of this I’ll admit!) have such messy rooms that we don’t know where to start! So, here are 26 things you probably have lying around in your bedroom that you can throw away today.
Old paper scraps


Christmas lights that don’t work


Out of date magazines and newspapers


Broken / worn out jewellery


Fairy / Christmas lights that don’t work


Worn out hair bobbles and bands


Receipts that you don’t need


Earrings who’ve lost their twin


Same goes for socks


Scratched CDs/DVDs


Scratched (sun)glasses


Out of date makeup products


Out of date hair products


Gifts you never use or want


Nail varnish / eyeshadows that have seen better days


Purses you never use


Worn out bed sheets


Worn out / scuffed shoes


Out of date skincare products


Worn out / Grown out of / broken bras


Makeup bags you never use


Empty jars, pots, boxes, bottles and containers


Worn out clothing


Expired medication


Scraps of post/mail


Expired vouchers


I hope this helped you get that much-needed clear-out done! Tweet me pictures of your freshly tidied rooms!

    Great list! I'm pretty good at routinely going through most of my things, but seeing as I totally work socks with giant holes in them this weekend I think I need to go through some things again haha!

    Hahahaha I read this as 26 things I should never throw away. I'm a hoarder so I have a hard time letting go LOL. Broken things are easy to toss thou but if it's perfectly good I have a harder time. And my girls wear mismatched earrings all the time when they lose one 🙂
